This course covers the core concepts typically used to build and administer a Kubernetes cluster in production, using vendor-independent tools. We build a cluster, determine network configuration, grow the cluster, deploy applications and configure the storage, security and other objects necessary for typical use. This course offers exposure to the many skills necessary to administer Kubernetes in a production environment and is excellent preparation for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam.

Skills Gained

In this course you will learn about installation of a multi-node Kubernetes cluster using kubeadm, and how to grow a cluster, choosing and implementing cluster networking, and various methods of application lifecycle management, including scaling, updates and roll-backs. The course also covers configuring security both for the cluster as well as containers, managing storage available to containers, monitoring, logging and troubleshooting of containers and the cluster, configuring scheduling and affinity of container deployments, using Helm and Charts to automate application deployment, and understanding Federation for fault-tolerance and higher availability.

Who Can Benefit

This course is ideal for those wishing to manage a containerized application infrastructure. This includes existing IT administrators, as well as those looking to start a cloud career.

Prerequisites

Students should have an understanding of Linux administration skills, comfortable using the command line. Must be able to edit files using a command-line text editor. A knowledge of Cloud Native application concepts and architectures (such as is taught in our free Introduction to Kubernetes edX MOOC) is helpful for this course.

Instructor s willingness to answer any questions we had: hard or dumb! The instructor s ability to explain difficult concepts in an easy to understand fashion made this course a real learning experience.. Chris is a very knowledgable and a great instructor. I am glad that I this opportunity to take this training with him!

This has been the most beneficial training I have received from a course. The instructor was willing to take extra time to go over the material if questions were asked. In addition, if we had extra time the instructor was willing to answer kubernetes related questions even if it was something not directly coveredin the course.

Overall good training. Learned lots new information.
Good reading material. Trainer shared additional links to kubernetes io documentation.

Chris is a very good trainer. Even the session was virtual, Chris keep attention of all students very well with course elements but also a strong experience in the domain. For each topic, he provided exemples, used-cases, .. which are want we looking for a professor.

Great Labs
Excellent notes provided by instructor and take home booklet is a useful reference
